Displaced Homemaker Program at Southeast Community College


In 1993, the North Carolina General Assembly appropriated funding for county-level displaced homemaker programs operated by local non-profits, community colleges and governmental agencies. The funding is administered by the N. C. Council for Women, a division of the N. C. Department of Administration. Funding is awarded annually on a competitive basis. Current North Carolina law permits funding of no more than thirty-five displaced homemaker programs. The Displaced Homemaker program at Southeast Community College in Whiteville is designed to assist people who provide unpaid household services to their home and are unable to secure employment due to lack of training or experience. Services are also available to people who were dependent on the income of another household member and no longer are supported by that income. Funding from the North Carolina Council for Women to Displaced Homemaker programs provides the following mandated services: job counseling, job training and job placement services; health education and preventative health care counseling; financial management services; and educational services.  Southeastern Community College receives funding for the Displaced Homemakers program and operates the grant through the Columbus County JobLink Career Center.
